Scholarships

ScholarshipsThanks to our generous sponsors, the Foundation is able to offer scholarships to cover part of the voyage fare. To be eligible for a scholarship you must be between 14 and 25 years of age and complete one of our scholarship application forms. Scholarship applications are taken thorughout the year, there is no cut-off date. There are however, a limited number of scholarship places available on each voyage, so getting your application in early is recommended.

The Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation has two main sponsors who provide funding to those suffering financial hardship that prevents them from being able to afford the voyage fare on their own. The partnership of Woodside Energy and the Minderoo Foundation is truly appreciated. We have a number of different scholarship streams depending on your age and which area you live in. To be matched up with your correct scholarship stream please email ashleigh@sailleeuwin.com or give the office a call on (08) 9430 4105 and we will send you through a scholarship application form.


As a rule, we do not offer fully funded scholarship places. There is always a component that has to be paid by the participant. Fundraising ideas to make up the balance of your fare can be downloaded here:
